Christmas is really up in the air as retailers lure consumers with big discount tags and bundle packages. PlayStation has also joined the holiday spirit and decided to give out a generous surprise to selected subscribers by sending them golden tickets.
PlayStation is trying to emulate Willy Wonka when it decided to give out golden tickets worth $100 to randomly selected subscribers of their newsletter. The golden tickets are redeemable at the PlayStation store. The tickets can be used on almost all products available on the PlayStation store online.
The $100 golden tickets contain a voucher code which you will use when you redeem it. The promo period lasts until December 19 so that's and early Christmas special to the lucky recipients.
Aside from the $100 golden tickets, Sony also sent out 20 percent discount on all online purchases to those who have received Sony's weekly PlayStation update newsletter, This promo, however, is only available to their US subscribers. The 20 percent discount can only be used to make a one-time purchase.
Prior to these discounts, Sony also gave a $10 discount from the price of PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. The company hopes to lure consumers to spend more this Christmas by giving away lots of discounts that come in different packages.
It is not clear, however, whether the promo is available to all or only for the subscribers of the PlayStation newsletter. What's clear is that the 20 percent discount is not applicable to purchases on the PS Vita, PlayStation TV, PSP, or in-game purchases.
